Tokyo Edge: June gadgets are Go with new PSP

June is always a busy month for new gadgets. The E3 video games show, Taiwan's Computex IT show and Singapore's CommunicAsia all provide a launching pad for new products and other companies are busy preparing new gizmos for the upcoming mid-year holidays.

Solar phones: It was only a few months ago that the first prototype solar-powered cell phones were being shown off by LG and Samsung. Well, now the first production models are ready to launch but they're from Japan's Sharp. The phones recharge the battery through a solar panel built into the top of their clamshell-style body. Thirty minutes in the sun will provide enough power for 2 minutes of chat or 140 minutes of standby power while 90 minutes pushes this up to 9 minutes of talktime and 560 minutes on standby. If you leave the phone in a brightly lit place you might never need to plug into the wall again!

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
